Over the last eighteen months or so,
Architects have hosted a series of seminars to explore
sustainable placemaking. In this period we have hosted seven seminars, at which
130 senior representatives of the British housing industry have contributed
their thinking towards a better understanding of the concept.
Here you will find a record of these
events. You will be able to make contact with participants and you will have an opportunity
to contribute to the future direction of this enquiry into the nature of sustainable places
and techniques for creating sustainable places in the future.
What is the Sustainable Placemaking Forum
Bernard Hunt has set out his
vision in a speech
on 22 February 2001 to the 'Placemakers Club', which we have reproduced. We
have included a bibliography and some images of what we believe
constitute the essence of placemaking.
HTA set it up, but from this point onwards the website has a life of its own.At HTA, we see ourselves as active participants. We will continue to feed in the outcome of our seminars.
We hope to
find partners to work with in developing our vision and turning it into
reality. We hope and expect that others will form mutual interest groups too.
We hope you will get in touch.
The Sustainable Placemaking website and series of
are administered by HTA .
